    Yeah, you could include the four super bowl losses and the missed field goal in the NFC championship game and market it as "Suicide in Purple."

    Yup, I agree. I have been all over collecting these NFL Greatest Games sets when they feature vintage games from when I was a kid (1970's through 1980's). The Vikes greatest seasons were the 1970's, even with all of the Super Bowl futility. Warner couldn't manage to scrape up even one single NFC championship or other playoff game featuring the excellent Bud Grant teams? I guess I'll be skipping this one...

    Like the 69-70 championship game when Joe Kapp ran over a linebacker, for example.
